We care about our planet

The problems with the environment are more pronounced and at present, this topic is no longer just a topic of cool discussion, but a necessity. The planet gives clear signs that our actions are affecting us, as a result, we at 3dFusion believe that every member of the community can contribute to a cleaner environment and a better world. The small steps, taken together, become big.

Is 3D Printing Beneficial for the Environment?

3D printing technology can make our world better and cleaner. However, doubts are often expressed whether it can really be considered and environment-friendly technology. In fact, 3D printing has many advantages, and its good influence on the environment is one of them.

No Waste: The Biggest Advantage of 3D Printing

Manufacturing with the use of fabrics, metals and other materials usually involves having large amounts left over. Most of this cannot be reused or properly processed and becomes waste in a landfill. 3D printing doesn’t leave waste per se, only elements of the supporting material, and there’s relatively little of these. You create the objects you want to create without any trimmings, and you really create those objects how you want to and when you want to. 3D printing is the best solution for low-volume production. In this field, it’s also the most environment-friendly. Moreover, some companies—such as Bosch, General Electric and some automotive companies—are considering the introduction of 3D printing into mass production.

What “Eco-Friendly” Mean?

This term simply describes a product that is not harmful to the environment. However, it can get more complicated than that, as there are many factors of something that might be “harmful to the environment.” So many different things can negatively influence the environment, such as not using proper procedures when disposing of products. However, there are many benefits to using eco-friendly products that are not simply centered around the health and well-being of the Earth, but also the health and wellbeing of your family.
As you can see, there are plenty of positives to switching over to products that are better for our environment. Consider taking just a small step toward helping the planet we live on.

Lower Costs

Eco-friendly products may seem to be more expensive, but long-term they are actually more cost efficient. Eco-friendly products tend to last much longer. These products are typically made from recycled materials and are sturdy, withstanding most drops, kicks, and dishwashers. Eco-friendly products may have a larger sticker price, but since they last longer, it is an investment that will pay off.

How we handle this locally?

In our office, we collect from cardboard to contaminated packaging but of course the most significant is plastic even if it are scraps or packaging.
This is just the first step, until early next year we will buy a grinder machine and a extruder machine .
With this 2 machines we want turn the plastic scraps back to filament and print something for the community , this year we want to print around 50 Christmas tree decorations  and give them away as a gift.
